The Republic of Moldova has vast renewable energy potential that remains largely untapped. Greater use of renewables would reduce costly fuel imports and boost the country’s economic development.
This study examines the policy, regulatory, financial and capacity-related challenges that the country has to address to meet targets for renewables to make up 42% of the country’s electricity mix by 2035.
Panama has vast potential to develop renewables. The National Energy Plan suggests that as much as 70% of the country’s energy supply could be renewable by 2050.
Panamá tiene un gran potencial para desarrollar energías renovables. El Plan Nacional de Energía sugiere que hasta un 70% del suministro de energía del país podría ser renovable en 2050.
This report identifies key actions to accelerate renewable energy deployment. The report presents options to strengthen Pakistan’s policy, regulatory and institutional framework for renewables.
This report advises the country’s energy planners to explore different renewable energy policy assumptions and investment scenarios, taking into account the latest studies on resource potential and technology costs.
Like many countries in South East Asia, the Philippines faces twin challenges of population growth and rising energy demand. Dependent on imports for nearly half its primary energy supply, the country is highly exposed to oil price volatility. Frequent tropical storms, meanwhile, adversely impact its energy infrastructure.
Mongolia can use its vast renewable energy resources to bolster energy security, reduce pollution, meet global climate commitments and develop regional electricity exports, finds this report prepared jointly by IRENA and Mongolian Ministry of Energy. Electricity output from the country’s solar and wind resources alone could reach 15,000 terawatt-hours per year.
Ghana has one of Africa’s highest rates of access to electricity. In 2014 this was estimated at 72%, with over 87% in urban areas and nearly 50% in rural areas. The country also exports power to its neighbours, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso. The Ghanaian power industry is unbundled, comprising generation utilities, transmission and distribution companies, and independent power...
Mauritania possesses significant renewable energy resources, which could be developed to strengthen the economy and improve access to energy. Solar and wind energy technologies are well suited for integration into the country’s existing network of mini-grids, according to this Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) report released by the International Renewable Energy Agency...
